Never Enough Wool

NEWSLETTER

March 2014

March Break – First day of Spring – What other delights will March bring for you this year?  For us, it is NEW YARN!    We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our newest worsted weight super-wash wool – Painted Sky.  The sales person promises that we will have all twelve (twelve!) colours on or about March 10.  That’s soon!  We can hardly wait.  Barb has knit up a sample pair of fingerless mitts with this wool, and she loves it.  Several of our ladies have printed off the pattern and are waiting for the wool, with needles poised and bated breath.  Mark your calendars – come see us on Tuesday, the 11th, and pet this wool!

Painted DesertSpeaking of new colours of Painted Desert, did we show the restock to you yet?  The Painted Sky comes from the same manufacturer and has many similar colourways.  We can’t wait until they arrive!


Carol is working on a couple of experimental projects destined for next year’s N.E.W. calendar, as well as the lace shawlette for the April class.  In addition, there is the Building Blocks afghan square as well as an Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool summer top.  Barb is crocheting big time these days, and is carrying three projects with her.  One is a summer t-shirt, the second is a beautiful shawl (made with a new Painted Desert colourway), and a tank top.  There are knitting projects too, but they are hiding at home. 

Keep in mind that we continue to add to our Knitting (and Crochet) Wonders tally.  Currently (as of March 6, 2014) we stand at 868.   We will be counting projects all the way til August 31, 2014, so keep those needles and hooks busy.  We are planning a party when we hit 1,000., so the race is on to get there.

Don’t forget the Knitters Frolic on April 26.  (Check out the webpage – http://downtownknitcollective.ca/wp/?page_id=14 -- can you spot Barb, Carol and Carrie?)  This is a fun day at the Japanese Cultural Centre where you may take classes, and fondle  shop for yarns and patterns.  Doug will be minding the store this day as both Barb and Carol will be at the Frolic. 

One of our ladies recently had an unfortunate event with her credit card and a point-of-sale terminal.  The lesson she learned was this:  If the terminal is immovable, don’t use it.  There may be a camera mounted to record your pin number. 


Classes:

We attempt to keep our class fees at the lowest possible rates.  In order to do so, we ask that our students purchase their supplies here at the shop.  In addition, we offer class discounts to our students.  Please note that if you are not able to finish your project in the allotted time, you are welcome to continue attending the lesson times until you are finished.  

You must register for your class before class time.  Class times are generally Tuesday afternoon from 1-3:00 pm and Tuesday evening 7-9:00 pm.  Other times may be arranged to suit, but we will strive to hold classes primarily on Tuesdays.   Drop-in knitters are always welcome, space allowing. 

Beach Bag in Mosaic – Think spring and make this delightful beach bag.  Although it looks complicated, you only use one colour of yarn per row.  No switching or wrapping of the yarns!  In addition, this is an exclusive design to Never Enough Wool.   Class will begin March 4, at either 1:00 or 7:00 pm and continue through the month.  Cost:  $20 plus materials.

Sugar Grove Shawlette – Interested in learning to read a lace chart?  This Sugar Grove Shawlproject is for you.  The shawl starts with easy garter stitch short rows, and then moves into an easy lace chart.  The cost is $20.00 plus materials – and you may use your choice of double-knitting (Carol is using Flirt from Sirdar) or worsted weight yarn.  We will start on April 1 at 1:00 or 7:00 pm and continue through the month. 

Great American Aran Afghan – This project will be meeting on the third Sunday of each month, providing there are no holidays on the specified weekend.  We will be meeting on March 16, from 1-3:00 pm.  Join Barb as she works her way through the squares. 

Entrelac Jacket – One of our customers brought in the book Entrelac by Rosemary Drysdale, and we spotted the beautiful Edwardian Cardigan on page 104.  Barb and I were instantly smitten.  So much so that we have decided to make this a Knit-Along beginning in March, 2014.  This will require nine different colours of sock yarns, so start planning and saving now. 

Building Blocks – Michelle Hunter has created an afghan comprised of knitted squares, each designed to build your skills with needles, stitching, and assembly.  We plan to start this class in January 2014 – what better way to spend your winter than creating something lovely and warm?  Space is limited to 6 students, so sign up early.  Class is currently filled – leave your name if you are interested; if there is sufficient interest, we will offer a second round of classes.


Continuing Events:

Sit ‘n Stitch:  Every Wednesday afternoon, from 1 until 3.  Bring your latest project and join us for some stitching, questions answered, tea, and lots of laughter.  Everyone is welcome!  

Saturday Stitching:  Every Saturday, from 2 until 4.  What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than with friends both new and old, some handwork, and some tea?  

Knitting Night:  Every Thursday, from 7 until 9.  Although it’s called Knitting Night, crocheters are encouraged and welcomed.  There is plenty of friendship, tea, and yummy goodies for all.
